September news from Anza VFW Post 1873 and its Auxiliary

We want to thank everyone who came out for the spaghetti dinner and bake sale fund raisers to help pay for new air conditioner and heating units for the Post. The old ones were not doing their job. And when you’re in the kitchen with the ovens on that can be pretty miserable.

We especially want to thank Mimi Brown and her crew of fellow Lions for preparing the meal and the Thimble Club ladies who made lots of homemade goodies for their donations. All profits will be given to the Post to help defray the cost of the units.

Watch for fliers for more fundraisers. We still have a long way to go to get this paid for. If you want to make a monetary donation, drop off a check at the Post or mail it to P. O. Box 390433. All donations will be greatly appreciated.

Heads Up! It was just decided to hold a fundraising auction Sept. 28, to help with the cost of the units. There will be more info forthcoming in a following issue of the paper, or you can call the post at 763-4439.
